I see Sheldon is getting 12-18 inches, good luck Husses. Please go dig out my parents. I don't remember Sheldon ever getting that much at one time, but that is a typical snowfall for Brad/Sarah.

I'm just trying to leave Denver yet. the morning flight was canceled. If I can leave somewhat on time should be fine to land and make it home.

Ya we are in Blizzard warning from 9pm to all of Monday... winds up to 40mph and suppose to be high of 30 so the warm temp. will help bring more snow.

I think lots of schools were already cancelled for today as of last night even though we didn't end up getting any snow. Looks like it's starting a little bit now.

We were always further North of the big snow fall area but it started at 8-12 for us and kept going down

We were suppose to get 3-5. Ended up with 8. Still coming down a little, but it's wrapping up. I already scooped it all so I'll maybe have another inch to quickly do tonight or in the morning.

Some streets in town aren't plowed still. Jocelyn got stuck after picking up Evie. Some good sameritan and I pushed her out.

Luckily the wind isn't too bad or it would have been really bad.

Saw a pic from just north of Ames where there was a big accident and a lot of cars backed up on the highway.

looks like traffic is flowing again there.. also it was south of Ames not north, which traffic is always worse.

Literally no visibility. This picture does not do the circumstances justice.

Essentially yes.
Last night was tough. I was torn between curling up on the hard floor of the pharmacy or sleeping in a hospital bed with all the sick patients.

Looks like we have a low chance for snow tonight. I'm so sick of shoveling.

I misspoke. 1 death in this pileup. The other deaths happened across the state because of the storm.

Dancing with the Stars tour bus was also in the accident.

Just saw the traffic cam video from the pile up. It's pretty crazy.
